Deadline on diocese deal passes

The Kentucky Post

Post staff report

Thursday was the deadline for those who want to participate in a class-action settlement against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington.

Any victims of sexual abuse at the hands of diocese priests or employees who wanted to be part of the settlement had to file a census form.

Carrie Huff, who represents the Covington diocese in its case, referred comment to Special Judge John Potter, who is hearing the case. He was not available for comment on Thursday evening.

Attorney Stan Chesley, who represents the plaintiffs, also could not be reached for comment.
